Cronus "the wily, youngest and most terrible of Gaia's children" [25]was convinced by Gaia to castrate his father.

    When first asked to marry him, Hera had refused; and had gone on refusing every year for three hundred years. All the Olympians lived together in an enormous palace, set well above the usual level of clouds at the top of Mount Olympus, the highest mountain in Greece.

Hades and Zeus often have a fair bit of conflict, being complete opposites after all.
